"The duo behind Sistahs of Harlem blend catwalk couture with uptown flare." -Time Out New York
Designer Brands in Paris, Milan and Tokyo are copying hip-hop street life today, and the T-Shirt is the urban fashion staple. Now, the first book from the women who redefined and marketed the torn T-Shirt concept and started a fashion craze, shares 20 unexpected and easy-to-follow projects for every gal. Here's a way to be hip, cool, and fiscally responsible--all at the same time.
"T-Shirt Makeovers" not only presents step-by-step instructions to turn the classic T into a fashion statement, but also exhibits it with original illustrations and vibrant photos that will showcase your creations.
Take your old or weary, new and funky or just plain cotton comfy T-shirt and turn it into a fashion statement. "T-Shirt Makeovers" is a guide for every fashionista, a how-to style book for those who want high fashion at an affordable cost. The first book by the celebrated style duo, Sistahs of Harlem, "T-Shirt Makeovers" reveals their fashion secrets in a step-by-step format that will make turning any T-shirt in your closet into a fashion find.
Consider the T-Shirt a blank canvas that can be cut, sewn, twisted, and turned. It can be deconstructed and reconstructed; recycled and resuscitated, refashioned, and reinvented. Its style can be punk-y, funky, chic, unique, retro and even classic. It can become a halter, a tank top, a peasant blouse, a tube top, or even a dress. Demonstrating the versitility of the incredible T, this book shows--with original illustrations and vibrant photos of the end result--how easy it is to turn the old into something new.
The Sistahs continue to receive praise and recognition for their singular vision, from outlets such as Seventeen, YM, Jane, Bust and Ebony magazines. In "T-Shirt Makeovers," this innovative team will help you realize the unlimited possibilities of your own creativity.
